The Islamic Center’s new mosque, at 120,000 sq. ft., is grand in comparison to its earlier facility (17,000 sq.ft.), yet both structures are distinctive for the large spaces they set aside for religious and social events. The new mosque includes a vast meeting hall that can be divided into several smaller rooms, an industrial kitchen, a spacious prayer room with a high, calligraphy-decorated dome, a generously proportioned mezzanine for women, offices, meeting rooms, a library, and archival space set aside to document the community’s history in America. Led by Imam Hassan Qazwini, the Islamic Center offers a wide range of religious, educational, and public programs. It is frequently host to interfaith tour groups and visiting dignitaries from around the world. With a congregation of over 3,000 members, the center has long been one of Detroit’s most vibrant and influential Muslim institutions. A calendar of events, lectures by Imam Qazwini, prayer times, programs, and photographs of the new mosque are available at http://www.icofa.com.
